wmii

wmii

wmii is a dynamic window manager for X11, which is highly customizable and usable with keyboard and mouse. It supports conventional, tabbed and tiled window management with low memory usage.

It is designed to have a small memory footprint, and have as little code as possible, thus ensuring as few bugs as possible.

It is highly modularized and uses an inter-process communication interface which is oriented on the 9p protocol of plan9.

In its default configuration, wmii's interface is similar to that of the Vi text editor; the windows are controlled with H,J,K,L and can be combined with either Alt or Alt+Shift.
